about benghazi. she's a consumer of it and therefore that -- this qualifies her to be secretary of state on fox news. i mean i don't know how much more black and white the hypocrisy -- >> stephanie: as you and others have pointed out, the iraq war obviously cost us god knows how much blood and treasury in the final analysis. the benghazi attack, as horrible as it was compared to the iraq war, not even close right? >> right. so condy rice helped initiate a war plus $3 trillion, 4,000 american lives untold number of iraqi dead and susan rice was reacting to a terrorist attack that killed four americans and in the eyes of the republicans eyes of fox news and the eyes of the right wing crazies these are now equal events. it is -- thankfully, the whole thing seems to have petered out. it has been one of the most frustrating and maddening smear campaigns we've seen in awhile. >> stephanie: it really is. a woman of such obvious inelect and capability and it -- >> also mentioned last week, you know, g.o.p. gets absolutely s
and protection at that compound location in benghazi. mike rogers, the intelligence chairman on the house side, he said that what i find absolutely gross negligence -- gross negligence is that they did not take the right precautions. meaning that the state department or the administration did not give the ambassador that kind of protection that he apparently was looking for. reporter: yes, you have the whistleblowers to testify on capitol hill. we talked to them as well. it is a three act tragedy. you have the security that was not there before them. you have the response during seven-hour firefight. and many of the questions about how it was characterized afterwards. there are many questions about benghazi that have yet to be fully answered. these hearings and the continued focus on capitol hill, i think it is going to stay in the forefront, at least it will continue to cover it. if ambassador rice is nominated, i guarantee you that it will still get coverage elsewhere as well. jon: i'm sure you'll be talking about it tonight. bret baier will talk about it on a special report 6:00 o'clock eas
scrutiny from congress over her knowledge of the attack in benghazi, libya, that killed four americans. >> does this now mean john kerry is the front runner to be the next secretary of state? >> republicans and democrats said the nominee who would be most easily confirmed is john kerry. >> the president wants to pretend that spending isn't the problem. that's why we don't have an agreement. >>> 18 days now and counting to avoid that fiscal cliff. president obama and house speaker john boehner met at the white house. >> the two men met for less than an hour and that is not an encouraging sign. >> i remain hopeful this we can get this resolved. >>> breaking news a 6.3 earthquake off the southern california coast was felt from san diego north into l.a. county. >> southern california is in store for another day of high tides and flooding. the so-called king tides are formed by the alignment of the sun, moon and earth. >>> this happens once every 30 years. >> former south african president nelson mandela is said to be making progress as he battles a lung infect
he had, he kept at it. then after he got out of that one he starts talking about benghazi and all this other stuff and lost that one argument. could he have won if he said, i'm the guy you need for this job. >> part, you need to go back and show why the policies were going to work. for example, if you take a look at 2003 bush tax cuts, by 2007, $800 billion more revenue had come in and the deficit was cut from $370 billion to $260 billion. did you hear him say that? that's what he needed to do, full-throated defense of republican policies that bush implemented but also he could have used to show why his policies would work. ultimately when you make it a referendum, you take the arguments off the table. >> do you buy that he should have defended all the republican policies of bush and his own? >> no, because those policies got us in trouble in 2008 in a great many ways. bush inherited a surplus and left with a massive deficit. didn't monitor the financial system and so on. the most important point is david's right about, which is there's no such thing as a presidential referendum e
and the aftermath of the attacks on benghazi and libya that killed the ambassador there and several others. so she's come under fire because of the administration's response. we've seen many veteran senators very critical of her, including senators john mccain and lindsey graham. they will have much more on "the situation room" as this news is just coming out, what this means. let me get to the statement here, the statement from the white house. quote, i spoke to ambassador rice and accepted her decision to remove her name -- this is the president -- remove her name from consideration for secretary of state. it goes on. for two decades susan has proven to be an extraordinarily capable, patriotic, and passionate public servant. as my ambassador to the united nations, she plays a role in american's interest. she has secured international support in sanctions against korea and stood up for sudan and stood for the human rights of all people. it goes on to say that he's very grateful that she will continue to serve as ambassador to the united nations. it's been widely known that she has been the topic.
report found that security in the post benghazi was woefully inadequate leading up to the attack on the u.s. consulate that killed chris stevens. he's got a whole lot of international issues to deal with, but he's also going to be leading a department that, including its foreign staff, has 75,000 people. >> all right. elise labott, jessica yellin, wolf blitze thank you very much, all of you guys. we'll take a quick break and we'll be following this. arrhea,? yeah. one phillips' colon health probiotic cap each day helps defend against these digestive issues with three strains of good bacteria. approved!

was responsible for the attack in benghazi? >> aqim played a role, the discussions are under way about how aqim members interacted with others and those are questions better left to a closed session. >> we'll try to arrange that at an appropriate period of time. on that same point you acknowledge that u.s.-africa command is coordinating with ecowas on planning for an intervention in the north. i guess that should be said, a potential intervention in the north. is that correct? >> it's correct to say that the intervention is not planning phases at this point. the intervention would be led by the maliian armed forces with support from the international military force. there is no construct or intention of having a u.s. boots on the ground type of support to that intervention but at this point we're providing planning support exclusively and we'll look at opportunities to provide support to those partners with whom we can engage. >> your statement said the mission will have kuhl objectives of establishing maliian sovereignty and confronting al qaeda. do you think the people you're training will be
in benghazi. it was involved in attacks and planned attacks in europe. a lot of people forget they tried, actually in the 1990s to fly a plane in the eiffel tower much like what happened in new york on 9/11. so it's a very, virulent group that certainly threatens us and our allies. jenna: your expertise on this, peter, what do you think about our military intervention? we'll explain what that means in a moment. what do you think about us getting involved here? is this a good decision now with the tiling? what your thoughts? >> we need to recognize the threat and we need to prepare to do something but we need to really prepare the terrain. i'm very concerned that we're rushing into something that's very half-baked. the african force that is talked about is a little over 3300 men. which is a laughable amount when you're talking about an area the size of texas. it is not a serious force. so they need our help. they need some training but they're not adequate. so until there's really commitment to put a force in there, that can actually do something, we run the risk of jumping into something
